Song of the Day: 'Love the One You're With' by Stephen Stills

We interrupt our regularly scheduled Skeeter Davis posts to bring you this notice from the New York City Health Department. Not only does the government want you to stop being a whore and have sex with -- gasp -- your partner, they're also putting the kibash on rim jobs.

If you're down and confused 
And you don't remember who you're talkin' to 
Concentration slip away 
Cause your baby is so far away
Well, there's a rose in a fisted glove 
And the eagle flies with the dove 
And if you can't be with the one you love 
Love the one you're with

In a graphic list of guidelines for safe-sex practices during the coronavirus pandemic, the Health Department called out rimming as particularly dangerous. “Rimming (mouth on anus) might spread COVID-19. Virus in feces may enter your mouth,” the city warned in the section titled, “Take care during sex.” And the most disturbing part? The New York Post wrote an article about it, using a photo of a woman's ass. (Haven't we been through enough?) See the full list below.

Hard to believe that a song this seminal peaked at No. 14 on the Hot 100.
